What Skin Tone Are You

The fashion conscience Sandy Swim girl most likely already knows her skin tone.  However, if you need a reminder or are yet to discover your tone it’s important to note that most of us generally fall into two categories of skin tone – warm and cool.

If you have warm skin tone your skin might be light, medium or dark with a golden undertone. Also, chances are your hair has hints of red or gold, and your eyes are dark brown, green, or hazel. Kim Kardashian and Jessica Alba are perfect examples of celebrities with warm skin tones.

If you have cool skin tone your skin color may be pale to dark with pink undertones. When you tan you may tend to go slightly red and may even burn easily. Your hair can be light to dark with ash, silver, and blue undertones with blue, green, black, and light brown colored eyes. Examples of celebrities with cool skin tones include Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried.

If you are lucky enough to have a neutral skin tone then most colors will suit your skin tone flawlessly – you go girl!

How to Determine Your Skin Tone

  •   Remove all makeup;
  •   Grab a white towel or piece of paper;
  •   Find some natural summer loving light;
  •   Hold the white towel or paper underneath your chin in front of a mirror.

If your skin looks like it has a yellow undertone then your tone is warm. If your skin has a blue tinge then your tone is cool.

Now that we know what your skin tone is lets start shopping our hottest swimsuit colors to compliment your glow before the Sandy Swim Black Friday sale sees your favorite swimwear leave the shore.
